    Donut County is short. It has little to no replay value. It feels like it squanders a great deal of its potential. And yet, Donut County is still one of the best games I’ve played this year. You may only get a few hours out of Donut County, but they’re a few great hours.

    If you’re looking for something that will challenge you and twist your brain into knots, this game isn’t it. There’s no real skill curve, and most of the puzzles are simple enough that you can more or less accidentally stumble on the solutions, with a few rare exceptions. But I assure you that from the first moment you tip something into that hole and see it grow, you’ll be hooked.

    Donut County is an excellent concept executed with pizzazz, personality, and an unexpectedly salient message at its core. While the end came abruptly and left me wanting more, like an endless mode or bigger levels to swallow things in, I can't deny the great time I had with what's there.

    A light-hearted adventure, short but full of charisma. If you want something unique and charming, give this a try.

    Much like the sugary treats in its name, Donut County is sweet, satisfying, and you'll wish there were more when you're done. It's a jovial little adventure that has some great ideas; moving a hole around making objects fall in is surprisingly addictive and entertaining. Serving as a bite-sized snack between bigger titles, this definitely hits the spot, but those looking for a more filling experience may be left a little hungry.

    It’s something of a dilemma to be left disappointed by a game where your only complaint is that it left you wanting more. But that’s how I feel about Donut County. What it does, it does very well. But there just isn’t enough of it.

    Donut County gets points for its great art style, hilarious writing, and its truly unique gameplay. Unfortunately, as a game, it feels woefully underdeveloped, lacks any kind of challenge, and is far too short.

Nice characters, excellent and silly plot. Maybe short, but you if you want to play something funny and happy, this game is for you. The raccoon have a tablet with an app to make holes, and you’re the hole and your mission is to eat all, since flowers to buildings. The game have some puzzles and you can finish in a pair of hours (It took to me me several days because I don’t play daily), but there is people saying they finished in 2 hours. Easy platinum and I can’t recommend it enough. In one word: Nice. Try it if you can !!! Expand

I bought the ost on vinyl too because this soundtrack is too good to not jam to (Raccoon House Music slaps). It’s been getting harder for me to finish games so have a fun tailored experience like Donut County is really what I needed. Expand

Wouldn't pay more than $20 for this quickie though. Expand

Despite knowing very little about the characters or the world I ended up liking both and wanting to see more. At at the end of the day however, Donut County feels more like a great proof of concept rather than a full-blown game and for that I can't really score it as high as I would have wanted to. Expand
